2015 Outlook
Ryan Mallett, another disciple of O’Brien’s system in New England, will provide solid competition for Hoyer. Mallett saw his audition cut short after a pectoral injury sidelined him for the remainder of 2014. With mixed results in his two games played, the jury is still out on Mallett’s ability. A full offseason should give him a better chance to succeed. Thus far in OTAs and at the outset of training camp, the two are splitting reps and the battle remains fairly even on the field. For fantasy purposes, however, Hoyer’s contract and more recent starting experience make him the favorite to win the job. Regardless of who starts, a lack of consistent passing attempts will prevent either player to climb out of QB2 mediocrity.

News From The Past 90 Days
Brian Hoyer gets starting gig back for Texans
Ryan Mallett will fall back into backup role
By: John Canario | Fri Oct 9, 7:20 pm

Houston Texans
Brian Hoyer has his job back as Houston's starting quarterback. Hoyer won the job out of camp but was pulled in the fourth quarter of a season-opening loss to the Chiefs after committing two turnovers. Ryan Mallett has started since then, but he has struggled and Hoyer took over in both of the last two games as the Texans fell to 1-4. Hoyer replaced Mallett in the second quarter on Thursday night and threw for 312 yards and two touchdowns. He was intercepted by Mike Adams with less than 2 minutes left to help seal the Colts' 27-20 victory. (ABC News)

FFToday's Take: Aside from a late interception that sealed a Colts' victory, Hoyer looked sharp on Thursday night. The veteran slinger completed 77.1 percent of his passes en route to posting a 116.6 QB rating, and even added a 14-yard run for good measure. Unfortunately, though Hoyer has shown flashes of brilliance over parts of the past few seasons, these sorts of performances have been too few and too far between. He's nothing more than a bye week replacement in two-quarterback leagues.

Injury Arian Foster ruled out Sunday
Texans' RB practicing but HOU not ready to deploy star RB in a game
By: John Canario | Fri Sep 18, 4:15 pm

Houston Texans
Ryan Mallett will take over as the Texans' starting quarterback on Sunday, but he'll do so without the services of running back Arian Foster. Foster (groin) made some progress this week and returned to a fairly active role in Texans practice. Head coach Bill O'Brien cautioned interested parties that this would be a slow integration. The team is hoping to have Foster for the long haul. While he would have been a nice safety net for Mallett as he tries to take hold of the starting job, Houston is wise to push the breaks on Foster. In the past, he's been dominant enough to win games on his own and they may need it down the stretch. Alfred Blue, Jonathan Grimes and Chris Polk each caught a pass in the opener but with the Texans facing a Panthers defense likely without Luke Kuechly they could try and exploit some short opportunities over the middle like Jacksonville did a week ago. (

FFToday's Take: This should come as no surprise, as Foster had groin surgery on August 7th - just six weeks ago. But those who scooped him up in their drafts still got great value, as the former top-fantasy RB was initially predicted to be out for half the season. It now seems virtually certain that we will see Foster by week four, and possibly as early as week three. In the meantime, none of the Texans' backfield options are especially start-worthy.

Houston Texans

FFToday's Take: Brian Hoyer looked shaky against the Chiefs in Week 1 throwing a bad interception and completing just 53 percent of his passes. Mallett has yet to prove he's a substantial upgrade over Hoyer but he'll get an opportunity to prove just that against the Panthers. Mallett is a QB2 against Carolina.
